    No matter who the Patriots draft as a wide receiver, he will be cut after two years. To boot, the Patriots don't have a reliable coach to mentor him.

    I'm fine with all of this!

    I agree this means signing and/or trading for a DL or 2.

    I would note that this is also true for OT, although Lindstrom can be an emergency #4 I suppose.

    I would think that this trade could even happen before the end of the weekend.

    I would be fine with AJ Brown or Harry at 32. Obviously, it depends on who is else in there at 32.

    For example, if Windstorm falls to 32, I would expect us to run to the podium. He is our replacement for Thuney and will likely start for 4 years.

    We could then trade up if necessary to get our WR.

    Lindstrom has the length, athleticism and experience to be an OT if that’s what they need and more than an OT4.

    Terry McLaurin is going to be the draft pick that would excite me the most I think aside from someone like Ferrell dropping. Simmons and Lawrence on day one qualify too. There are other guys I like: Thornhill, Lindstrom, Joejuan, Savage, Stanley Morgan, Zach Allen and Anthony Nelson and others I rationalise as good picks, but those first three will be “woohoo” type picks.

    The Pats 2019 defense seems fairly well-staffed to me at the moment. The DL edge could use some help, but interior DL may be okay, and the LBs and secondary seem fine. With a couple-three depth and developmental prospects, the D should be the strength of the 2019 team - and it will need to be.

    The passing attack seems terrifyingly weak to me - like the worst periods of 2006 or 2013, or the first four-five games of 2018. Even the run-blocking is thinner now. AND, there's no way this draft is going to make the 2019 passing attack even as good as the 2018 version ended up (which was mediocre aside from Edelman, Gronk, and White - and Gordon for a bit). Just not gonna happen. Run-blocking can be brought back up to standards, though - I think. Since it will certainly take awhile for ANY pass-catcher (TE or WR) to get up to speed, if they can block well out of the gate, that's a major plus for me.

    And re-signing Hill (if healthy) could fill out the RB corps.

    I don't care about replacing CP's kick return ability. Almost anybody can consistently get 20 yards on a KR and be smart enough to take a knee in the EZ when the return isn't there. PUNT returns are a whole different skill set (so sez BB), and the League has been talking about eliminating kickoffs for two consecutive years now. So, PR experience/ability is a plus for me. KR is not.

    This would be a great draft in which to have, like, six 2nd-round picks.

    That's the first reason I love CL. He can at least play RG and RT most likely LG and in a pinch LT. Last year when anybody went down the OL wasn't the same.

    The second reason is he has a bit of Mankins nastiness.

    I won't be surprised to see BB dip into the Razorbacks D again this year for DT Armon Watts. He has good length and strength with an SEC pedigree and has the ability to generate inside pressure. He's a needle pointing up player IMO.
